Dear Mr. Spadaro:

In your letter dated March 19, 2008, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of your client USA Wholesale Trading, Inc.

The pullover top features a rounded neckline finished with scalloped capping, hemmed short sleeves, embroidery around the front neckline and a hemmed bottom with side slits. The capri length pants feature an elasticized waistband with a drawstring, side seam pockets, large embroidery on the right leg and hemmed leg openings with side slits.

We are returning your samples as you requested.

The applicable subheading will be 6108.32.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Women’sNightdresses and pajamasknitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 16% ad valorem.
